Absolutely no editing of posts.  Please do not post during the Night phase, as I do not have the ability to lock threads. No discussion of the game outside of this thread, unless it is in an approved QT or in private communication with myself or PSK.    Breaking these rules will result in a modkill.    There will be no ability table.    All times I post will be in Central Standard Time (CST).   If you have any questions, PM myself or PSK (though it's likely he will refer you to me, he can reach me if I am not on DGZ if necessary).    If you did not receive a role PM, please let me know as soon as possible.    Player List:   1.

JC.   Welcome to League of Legends Mafia.   Day 1: Good Luck, Have Fun   “Welcome to Summoner’s Rift.”   The thirteen Champions blinked in confusion as they heard the ethereal voice hanging in the air. It wasn’t unusual for them to be summoned for a battle at unexpected times; however, there were certain elements they had come to recognize as the standard for such events, from which they were now deviating.   First, there were thirteen of them. Each battle on the Rift only consisted of five Champions per team, or on occasion, six. But never more. To add to their confusion, they had been summoned onto the center of the Rift, not in opposing bases. There was no indication of any affiliation for any of them.   “Champions, it was discovered that a Summoner of the League of Legends was slain by none other than one of you Champions. It has been decided that you will be tasked with discovering who, and, if possible, why.”   Silence followed. The Champions looked between each other in suspicion, some weary, some excited. This was a new scenario, one that none of them had encountered before.    DAY ONE BEGINS NOW AND WILL END AT 9:00 PM CST, OR WHEN A MAJORITY OF SEVEN (7) IS REACHED.

  6. Pro Tour Theros discussion

    Figured I should start a topic to keep the conversation in one place instead of spread out through various threads.   Day 1 just finished with Paul Rietzl 8-0 with BW midrange and Sam Black 8-0 with mono blue devotion. Master of Waves seems to be the break out card so far, with it's ability to make an army and keep red based decks in check.    Although Team SCG > Team CFB so far, event is only halfway done, and a lot is still up in the air. I'll be excited to watch day 2 and top 8 play out.   Link to coverage:   http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/eventcoverage/ptths13/welcome   edit I am blind as fuck as did not see the other thread, apologies

  8. http://www.gcdailyworld.com/story/1839926.html [quote] Friday, April 20, 2012 An 18-year-old Illinois man was arrested and quickly convicted of stealing several packs of a popular strategy card games, condoms and personal sex devices from the Linton Super Walmart store earlier this week. Noah A. Wurl, of Altamont, Ill., was arrested by Linton Police Officer Brock Garrison in the early morning hours last Sunday. Wurl was observed by Walmart asset protection personnel concealing items in his clothing. When he exited the store without paying, he was confronted by Garrison. Wurl was found to be in possession of several packs of Yu-Gi-Oh game cards, condoms and what police described as "personal sex devices," according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court by Garrison. Yu-Gi-Oh is a card game of strategy, where players create individual decks of cards collected from structure decks and booster packs. Two players engage in a duel while using cards that represent powerful monsters, magical spells and surprising traps, according to Yu-Gi-Oh's game card website [url="http://www.yugioh-card.com"]http://www.yugioh-card.com[/url] . Wurl made an initial appearance in Greene Circuit Court by video link from the county jail on Monday morning and waived his right to a trial and admitted to the theft crime, which was reduced from a Class D felony to a Class A misdemeanor. Circuit Judge Erik Allen accepted the guilty plea and sentenced Wurl to 180 days in the county jail; gave him credit for two days served and suspended 174 days. Wurl, who served four additional days in jail, was then placed on probation. This is the second recent shoplifting arrest at Super Walmart for theft of game playing cards. On April 12, William S. Wilson, of Bloomfield, after he was allegedly observed by a store asset protection employee trying to conceal in his clothing "Magic: The Gathering" playing cards, also a widely played trading card game, was arrested. He was charged with theft, a class D felony. [/quote]

[/size][/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][size=1]So now I’m 41 and probably one of very few women entering her fifth decade welcoming the decline of my looks.

Positioning us, the photographer suggested I stand immediately to his right for the shot.[/size][/color] [color=#ffffff][size=4]Another woman I barely knew pushed me out of the way, shouting it wasn’t fair on all the other women if I was dominating the snap. I was devastated and burst into tears. On my own in the loos one woman privately consoled me — well out of ear-shot of her girlfriends.[/size][/color] [color=#ffffff][size=4]So now I’m 41 and probably one of very few women entering her fifth decade welcoming the decline of my looks. I can’t wait for the wrinkles and the grey hair that will help me blend into the background.[/size][/color] [color=#ffffff][size=4]Perhaps then the sisterhood will finally stop judging me so harshly on what I look like, and instead accept me for who I am.[/size][/color][/spoiler]

They simply walked around or stepped over him, before somebody else swept up all those cheap towels and soap dishes.[/font][/color] [color=#333333][font=inherit] Vance, 61, was a pharmacist and reputed all-around nice man who suffered from heart problems. According to his wife Lynn, He'd[url="http://sundaygazettemail.com/News/201111250135"]had a stent inserted about two weeks ago[/url], which may or may not have contributed to his death. Witnesses assert that, after Vance collapsed, most shoppers [url="http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/11/26/9035999-report-shoppers-unfazed-as-man-dies-at-target"]ignored or avoided[/url]him, keeping their eyes on the prize (fabulous deals!). However, Lynn [url="http://sundaygazettemail.com/News/201111250135"]told[/url] the[i]Charleston Gazette[/i] that "about six" nurses came to his aide, which suggests that nurses are the only caring people left in Charleston. One of the helpful nurses and a paramedic[url="http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/man-dies-collapsing-shopping-center-black-friday-article-1.983040?localLinksEnabled=false"]administered CPR[/url], and Target employees called an ambulance. Eventually Vance died at a local hospital.[/font][/color] [color=#333333][font=inherit] [/font][/color] [color=#333333][font=inherit] Should all the Target shoppers who failed to help Vance feel like wicked psychopathic monsters now? Well, walking over a dying man during your quest for discount bathrobes, as though he were simply a fallen tree branch in the road, in one's way, certainly takes a [i]special kind[/i] of person. That said, under U.S. tort laws, there is no legal [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duty_to_rescue"]duty to rescue[/url] anyone—only a moral one. In this litigious country, people who have acted upon their perceived moral obligation to rescue others have been [url="http://abcnews.go.com/TheLaw/story?id=6498405&page=1#.TtKZn_Jv800"]sued[/url] for [url="http://dba-oracle.blogspot.com/2010/01/good-samaritans-sued-by-un-dead-man.html"]their humanitarian efforts[/url]. Some states protect Good Samaritans from lawsuits, but how many people know what their state tort laws say? So it's possible that the shoppers were afraid that if they helped Vance they would end up in court somehow.[/font][/color] [color=#333333][font=inherit] Let's not rule out the possibility that they're psychopathic monsters, though.[/font][/color] [/size][/font]

  15. [url="http://espn.go.com/olympics/trackandfield/story/_/id/7091815/rob-sloan-disqualified-taking-bus-kielder-marathon"]http://espn.go.com/o...ielder-marathon[/url] [quote] [b] Man DQ'd for taking bus to finish third[/b] Rob Sloan boasted he'd completed an "unbelievably tough" marathon near Newcastle after crossing the finish line in third place with a personal-best time. Apparently, he didn't count the bus ride. Sloan dropped out 20 miles into the race, hitched a ride on a spectator shuttle bus and emerged from the woods near the finish line to make the podium. After Sloan initially described as "laughable" claims he cheated in the Kielder Marathon on Sunday, the 31-year-old former army mechanic admitted his transgression following an investigation by organizers. "People in cars following the bus saw him get on and off. People saw him run through the bushes -- we had him hook, line and sinker," Dave Roberts, one of the marathon organizers, told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "Rob was distraught at having to come clean." Sloan was stripped of his third-place medal. His time was listed as 2 hours, 51 minutes -- 21 minutes faster than his previous best in the race. Competitors criticized the runner for tainting an event labeled by organizers as "Britain's most beautiful marathon." Sloan's running club is the Sunderland Harriers. Steven Cairns, who moved from fourth to third following Sloan's disqualification, accused his rival of "stealing my glory." "I was third the whole way but somehow I crossed the line and was given fourth!" Cairns said on his Facebook page. "I started to doubt myself as he was adamant he had gone past me. I could understand him taking the goody bag and the T-shirt but to do the press interview claiming he was third..." A day after winning a 10-kilometer race at the same location, Sloan ran out of stamina with 6 miles left in the 26.2-mile marathon. Then came the bus ride and shortcut through the woods to the finish line. "I'm convinced it was not premeditated," Roberts said. "But he felt rough, pulled out and flagged down a bus. It's as bad as drug-taking in my book because it's attempting to improve your performance by cheating. I've never known anything like it." Sloan will go before a district committee this month and faces the possibility of being banned from marathons. "We are pleased this matter has been cleared up," said event director Steve Cram, a former world record holder and world champion in the 1,500 meters. "Mr. Sloan made a mistake and has apologized to us for the confusion it has caused." Cram will travel next week to Edinburgh, Scotland, to give Cairns his third-place medal. One of the most famous cases of cheating in a marathon came at the Boston Marathon in 1980. Rosie Ruiz was the first woman to cross the finish line but was disqualified when officials discovered she jumped into the race about a mile from the end. [/quote]
  16. dad goes on IRL "black op"

    i must admit i'm not 100% unsympathetic http://wownews.co.uk/news/517-grown-man-hunts-down-and-attacks-child-who-kills-him-in-call-of-duty-game.html A 46-YEAR-OLD fan of Call of Duty tracked down and attacked a schoolboy who had killed hiscomputer</span> game character, a court heard. Mark Bradford, 46, admitted he 'just lost it' after a 13-year-old player gunned-down his character then proceeded to mock him over the microphones used in the game Call Of Duty</span>: Black Ops. Jobless father of three</span> Bradford confronted the youngster at an address in Plymouth, Devon (UK), and started to strangle him, Plymouth Magistrates Court was told. The attack only ended when the teenager's horrified mother pulled Bradford off the boy then he left without any explanation</span>. The teenager's mother said: “It’s pathetic that a grown man would attack a defenceless child like this. “If you can’t handle losing to a child then you shouldn’t be playing games.” Bradford admitted the attack was 'moment of madness' as the child 'would not shut up'. He said: “I'd been playing the whole day and he was baiting me and baiting me and just would not shut up. “He went on and on and I just lost it. I hold my hands up, I lost the plot. In a moment of madness I went round to his house. I didn't know what I was going to do.” Bradford admitted one count of assault by beating Magistrates ordered a probation officer</span> to prepare</span> a full report on his background before he is sentenced.
